DRAWstonewalls 2021

Here are the entries for the #DRAWstonewalls event and competition.

These six pieces were created:sketched:stitched:painted by Sinead Lawson and were inspired by the Dry Stone Walls of the Dingle Peninsula in the County Kerry.

From all over the world people of all ages got creative and got involved in the #DRAWstonewalls event and competition. They drew, painted, cartooned, sketched, stitched their local dry stone walls. Some sketched a scene from Inis Oírr or memory of Féile na gCloch and others checked out some of the myths and memories on www.zibaldoneproject.com for inspiration.

Féile na gCloch, the festival of stones, unfurls virtually in 2021 on the 2nd October. Engage with the event whenever suits you via the Galway Heritage website.

Féile na gCloch, festival of stones, is an annual event on Inis Oírr. It brings together practitioners in stone walling, stone carving and letter carving from around the world to celebrate the heritage of the stones of the Aran Islands. In 2017, a new workshop was introduced, to reflect on the role that drawing and sketching plays in each of these traditions.
